For work and beyond...

We have been outfitting women for all areas of their busy lives for almost 6 years! Here, I will pay some attention to your work life. For spring and summer I love the look of a short-sleeved sweater layered over a polished top. This olive cardy from Tulle just came in. It works for work and your home/play/dinner-with-friends-life. We also just received this drapeneck tank from Last Tango, which looks great layered or on its own. This look is pulled together with a print, reversible skirt from Nally & Millie. Shoes, you say? Wear this outfit with any of these pretty pairs from Sadie's.

Another Beauty from Only Hearts at Helena's.

Only Hearts has quickly become our favorite dress line for summer. This dress impresses me to no end. I love the print and the delicate braided leather belt. Perfect dress for summer wedding.

Versatile, On-Trend Tops for Summer.

Our summer deliveries have included tops that can adapt to different styles and looks. This top from Three Dots can be worn with or without the attached fringe necklace. W/o the jewelry, it's a flattering heather-striped scoopneck top that looks fabulous with cropped jeans and a little XCVI jacket. With the necklace, it's a on-trend piece for a night out with your friends. And....the necklace can be worn with other tops too!

LaMade shows how good crochet can look.

Crochet is a HUGE spring and summer trend. (If you have not yet noticed by the numerous crochet-detail fashions in previous posts.) LaMade sent us one of the prettiest crochet tops to date...the "Laura." I love the delicate scallop sleeve on this top. We have it in a dusty lavender color.

Aura Dress from XCVI.

The "Aura" crochet dress from XCVI is stunning. Our favorite part is the wide band of open crochet at the bottom hem. This stretchy piece is lined. Great for your next party or event.

Great Prairie Underground Style!

This look is oh-so-Helena's! The short cloak hoody from PrU in Electric Red (which is more orange), a Sweet Pea tank in a fabulous graphic print, and a statement necklace from Bohm. Gorgeous!

You need a white summer dress.

A perfectly lovely on-trend look for this summer is the white dress. I think this look wears the best as a casual day dress is a crisp airy fabric. Meet the London Times capsleeve eyelet dress in white. Wear it with a bright pair of sandals, or with a braided metallic silver flip-flop. It's all good.

Have you seen our dreamy window?

The dresses in our Frankin Street window are to-die-for. Seriously. From the top: One shoulder print dress from Hazel, striped capsleeve dress from Only Hearts, pretty zip bags from Fossil, embroidered sundress from Johnny Was LA, and finally, a gorgeous striped tank dress from Only Hearts. Summer fashions look good. So do you. Come in and try on your favorite look!

Red Engine Nova Skirt

Everyone should own at least one sexy pencil skirt. We just got a great one in today from one of our favorite denim lines, Red Engine. The Nova pencil skirt is cut high on the waist, with two zip pockets on the hips and a zip at back. In a deep dark denim wash, this hot little number transitions easily between the seasons.

New Prairie Underground In Today!

Our June Prairie Underground order arrived this morning with some must haves for the serious Prairie fan. The Raven top (shown above under the red jacket) has a fantastic asymmetrical shape and mix of fabrics that manages looks both crisp and soft. We have the Raven in white. You have to see this in person, the picture does not do it justice. No Prairie order would be complete without the Long and Short Cloak Hoodies which we love so very much. We received the Long Cloak Hoodie in Blue Suede, which is a dusty blue, and the Short Cloak Hoodie in Electric Red (like the jacket above) and Blue Mood, a soft blue violet.

The Zumera dress from Velvet.

The summer collection from Velvet is unbelievably pretty and easy to wear (two hallmarks of our store). We have the Zumera in Inkpot, which is the color shown. We love ruffle hem, and the cinching button detail at the back.
